Hello, I'm Henry.  

Welcome aboard my blog's home. 

If you come along with me, you'll become acquainted with my motley mates and faithful crew:

Experiences, Sightings, Observations, Impressions, Ideas, Reflections, Remembrances, Insights and Commentary.

They, after all, have accompanied me for as long as I can recall. Their tenure has helped me turn my tiller, fill my sails, and transport me over seas to distant lands. Maybe if you take the time to get to know them, a few will do the same for you.

Click this way and scroll along if you please...Enjoy your stay.   

Reflections

Reflections

As Mystique lay at anchor in the Marine Stadium anchorage, some calm days afforded me the opportunity to snap shore reflections that had me reflect on reflections.  These moments show up on a calm body of water. They show off the beauty from above yet they never reflect perfectly what they reflect.  Sky reflections mirror what is above and beyond. They show their colors and contours, but like a mirror, they reveal an upside-down view.

Copy an imperfect image and invert it so the double view is even more spectacular as a vista than as a solo sky shot. A photo captures a moment. Whether it is memorable or not, depends on the mind

Because human reflections may glorify, embellish, exaggerate, distort or diminish reality, the memory of a photo may fail to be accurate. Emotions may greatly affect the image. Reflections recall as well as may replay experiences. A momentary memorable photo reflection and a personal remembrance often capture other human qualities such as feelings, attitudes or associations.
